keep it away from the people who matter, apparently the big city people. >> cenk: that's interesting. we found if you're shooting up walls in the center of the middle of the country that's ok but in newtown where one of the major financial companies that owned the rifle company then all of a sudden, they got to sell off the company and it's not ok. it's an interesting point that you're making. now when you go to governor cuomo, look, nationwide, it's really hard to stop this, you know the energy companies. they've bought off so many politicians. new york is supposed to be a liberal state solidly blue. do you have a chance with cuomo here to get the right decision? >> i think we do have a chance. obviously, it's a big fight. i think the gas industry is taking advantage of the faction that we're in session now proposing it as a solution to disentanglement to the middle east and creating more jobs. the truths is as bill clinton said in 2011, you can create more jobs based on the german bank research, insurance company, you can create actually exponentially more jobs by retro

city. look, we don't want to be an alarmist but that is the disaster of the sort we're going to see more of in the decades to come. what is the earth going to do with all of this energy? it's more than just a graph. this is extra heat. the earth needs to do something with it. what it does is it does a balancing act with weather and climate. i think these things that relate to migration, extinction of species and relate to agriculture regions changing wholesale. if the breadbasket of this country was no longer in this country. think about that. you want to talk about agriculture subsidies i don't mean to cut you off. >> no, you know more about this than i do. >> the shoe may pink economic. >> cenk: the graph that i should you that was confusing was carbon emissions. and speaking of rising oceans, the scientists are wrong. they're now rising 60% quicker than the scientists had predicted. mark and i talked about this earlier today. i say go see miami while you still can. >> and most people do--of course south beach. most people do live near the water within 50 miles of the water. that'
